In a string of very, very unfortunate events, a lorry overturned on an expressway in Liaoning province early this morning, resulting in more than 20 vehicles rear-ending one another, including a truck loaded with firecrackers, which exploded and brought the whole pileup into flames.
The massive car accident occurred on the Jinzhou-Fuxin expressway at around 4:24 a.m. today. The initial turnover was believed to have been caused by icy road conditions, Tencent News reports. The Jinzhou city fire department dispatched 11 fire engines and 43 firefighters to the scene. The flames have been extinguished, and no causalities have yet been reported.
Last month, eight people were killed in a vehicle pileup in Guangdong province after a cement bus collided with a car and a minibus on a highway. Most of the casualties were from the same family.
